Museum Der Moderne Salzburg, Salzburg

32 Mönchsberg
Austria 5020
Tel: 43 66284 2220401's insider take:

The former Salzburg Museum für Moderne Kunst became this streamlined, world-class showcase in 2004. Consisting of the Rupertinum (the Collegium Rupertinum palace, in the early Baroque style) plus two buildings by the Munich architecture firm Friedrich Hoff Zwink, the museum houses the sizable Rupertinum collection of Austrian Expressionists—especially strong on Klimt and Kokoschka—as well as works from the Austrian Gallery of Photography and (for the first time in Salzburg) visiting international exhibitions. Even here there's a Mozart connection: Look for arias from Don Giovanni carved into the Untersberg marble on the museum's facade. Architect Stephan Braunfels called this "one of the most beautiful museums in the world."

Open Tuesdays through Sundays, 10 am to 6 pm, Wednesdays, 10 am to 9 pm.
